AMAE/DE PINTO 58 (+1) INDICES ON THE BODY
63 variations on the body — Open call for Composers
deadline September 30th, 2015
After the launch of the project on Soundcloud, featuring Jean-Luc Nancy’s recorded voice reading his treaty 58 Indices on the body, it is now time to turn the text into music. For this reason, and in anticipation of the making of a documentary about the whole project, we are opening a call for composers to create a background track for each statement – written and recorded by the philosopher.
Candidates will join our Soundcloud page where they can choose a statement, or more than one (up to a maximum of three), and develop a musical accompaniment while also sharing their track with other artists.
Participants follow the directions below.
